Second woman accuses Gossip Girl star of rape

Cape Town - Just days after actor Ed Westwick was first accused of rape by an actress, another alleged victim has come forward with a shocking claim.

In a graphic Facebook post, Aurélie Wynn claims the 30-year-old actor raped her in July 2014.

She claims she had been invited to the actor’s home when her ordeal took place.

“I said no and he pushed me face-down. I was powerless under his weight,” Aurélie wrote.

“I was wearing a one-piece bathing suit which he ripped. I was in complete shock. I am also very tiny.”

The former actress says her then-boyfriend, Glee actor Mark Sailing, broke up with her when she told him of the incident.

“When he found out by who he pretended not to know him, then blamed me for it and broke it off with me.

“My other friends and people around me told me it was best not to say anything, not to be ‘that girl’.”

Actress Kristina Cohen was the first to accuse the former Gossip Girl star of rape. The alleged incident also took place at Ed’s home three years ago.

According to Kristina, her boyfriend at the time – who she only described as a producer – was friends with Ed. The couple were invited to Ed’s house but when they eventually wanted to leave, he insisted they stay for dinner.

“Ed suggested I nap in the guest bedroom,” Kristina wrote on Facebook.

“So I went and laid down in the guest room where I eventually fell asleep.”

The actress further explained how she was ‘woken up abruptly by Ed’ – who was on top of her with his finger entering her body.

“I told him to stop but he was strong. I fought him off as hard I could but he grabbed my face and hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to f*ck me.”

The morning after Kristina’s candid post on Facebook, Ed took to Instagram in response to her allegations.

“I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed any rape,” he posted. 

Ed has yet to respond to Aurélie’s claims.

According to Just Jared, a rep of Ed’s hung up the phone when he was called for comment.

LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Division sex crimes unit is investigating Kristina’s rape claim, Mirror.co.uk writes.
